You used to need the V5c number for this - publicly accessible is much better!

Makes for grim reading on my 330d though! :lol:

330CDT   

Yeah, this morning office banter is high as we are ripping people for failing on light bulbs! No maintenance what-so-ever haha

I checked one of my old cars that I sold (a saxo) and it failed with 9 reasons and had 3 advisories lol, bad times!

Its not as good as the old MOT history checker.

I just checked mine and I can only get 1 previous MOT as I've only had my plate on the car for one MOT.

The old one used to show all tests, regardless of the plate assigned to the car.

I put my plate on my car in 2009/10? Can't remember when exactly but it shows my MOTs back to 2006 - before I bought the car.

It used to do that for me but the new one in the link above doesn't now.

I thought this has been available for years.

Mine has only had one advisory in the 3 MOTs I've had done, and that was the first year - when I'd only owned it two weeks.

Interestingly, Wor Lass's Balloongo® had its first MOT two years and one week after its registration. :wacko:

I wish this history site was available in 2010. When I purchased my 2002 E46 325Ci Auto, I got a HPI check which was all clear but a small niggle was in my mind....it looked too clean but it did have a professional valet beforehand! I have checked my history and there is no MOT for 2007! If I had known, I would have not purchased the car without first checking with the previous owner....I suspect my car was had a rear end smash, not registered and repaired privately. Now the rear quarter panel is fadeing, I can spot welds on what looks like a reolacement panel, whereas the original is one piece! Oh well, lessened learnt and now more tools to check before I buy an E92

Oh dear god, seeing some of the neglect my E30 faced from previous owners :(

Shame it doesn't go back before 2006 and doesn't show mileage from before 2011. My E46 doesn't even show history from before 2009!

So my E46 has had two sets of rear springs fail in the past 4/5 years, goes to show the quality of them!

This made me chuckle a little;

Nearside Front Wheel bolt(s) missing (4.2.A.1e)

(On the E46 whilst in the ownerhip of someone else)

Mines a confusing mix of my old car and current car due to the private plate, its listing all of the MOT's for the old Clubsport - including the new recent one now its back on the road. Looks like it cost the new owner some pennies to get through the MOT unfortunately.
